What is IGNIS?

Ignis is the main child chain of Ardor — fully featured and permissionless blockchain for everyday transactions with low fees, and where you can develop dApps and Lightweight Contracts.

What IGNIS offers:

All the Ardor platform transaction types and features are available on the Ignis child chain. More than 20 built-in features on the Ignis child chain complement the proof-of-stake efficiency of the platform and make it suitable for a large variety of use cases. While the parent Ardor chain provides the security of the whole network, all the action happens on Ignis.

How does IGNIS work?

Use Ignis to experiment and build public applications with all the features available on the Ardor platform. You don’t need any permission, simply install the software, download the blockchain, get some tokens from an exchange as Atomars (or exchange with ARDR tokens on chain) then start using the APIs and coding. It is really that simple.

Key features

· Lightweight Contracts: provide a layer of automation on top of the Ardor platform API. Stateless lightweight contracts are much safer than the traditional stateful smart contracts, and a malicious contract can bring down only the nodes on which it runs.

Why do we need IGNIS?

IGNIS is the native operational token of Ignis — the first child chain of Ardor. To access the features of the Ignis child chain, users will require the IGNIS tokens. In short, IGNIS is the entry point to Ardor. IGNIS gives access to the rich functionalities of the platform and the unrestricted features of the permissionless Ignis child chain, such as the features mentioned in the section above.

History of IGNIS:

· Ardor asset issued on the Nxt blockchain
· Ardor tokens distributed to Nxt holders after a 3-month snapshot period
